    • In this hybrid model, some high needs students may still participate in full-time in-person
       instruction to ensure effective accommodations, and some families may still decide to
       keep their teen in distance learning full time.

    • Students who are at home on days designated for their grade level to be in the 
       schoolhouse will access the curriculum through technological outlets such as Zoom,
       Canvas, Outlook, etc. and through traditional procedures of collecting missed work
       and instruction.

       BVT on Monday, Tuesday, and alternating Wednesdays, and Seniors at BVT on Thursday,
       Friday, and alternating Wednesdays). Students will be in the shop for a total of five days
       during the two-week cycle.

    • In-person instruction in vocational shops will be conducted in a school environment that
       has been appropriately modified to address health and safety requirements issued by
       DESE and BVT.
       • Social distancing

    • Vocational cycle students who remain in distance learning will have two 1.5 hour work

    Vocational Sessions


  • Tier 2 Freshman Exploratory

    Within the design of Tiers 2–5, freshmen will be able to participate in our Freshman Exploratory experience. In Tier 2, our freshmen begin on Monday & Tuesday with two virtual shop sessions during their B Cycle shop weeks. Freshmen will report on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of the B Cycle week. 


  • Tier 2 Distance Learning

    Distance learning will include "live" instruction in all educational areas for the school year. 

    • All assigned academic and shop work will be graded and assessed based on standard 
       grading expectations associated with being in the classroom. 

    • The distance learning schedule will follow the A/B Weeks on our traditional one-week cycle.

    • Students will participate in a full day of classes and shop learning each day of the week.

    • We will track attendance and student participation using iPass as if we were operating
       under normal face-to-face circumstances. Families will be able to utilize their iParent
       and iStudent accounts for this information throughout the school year regardless of
       which tier we are operating in.

    • Remote academic and vocational work will be in alignment with typical state standards 
       utilized during non-COVID times.

    • Student work will be assessed regularly using a customary numerical system and families
       will be able to track progress using their iParent and iStudent accounts.

    • Teachers will be utilizing Canvas, Zoom, e-mail, and other technology platforms to
       conduct distance learning.
